Doggett Street Studio - Summer Exhibition 2012 - Rachael Lee

Doggett Street Studio , Brisbane, Queensland, opens its Summer Exhibition for 2012 on 24 February 2012.

 My good friend and artist, Rachael Lee has been invited to include some of her latest works in this upcoming exhibition.....

Rachael Lee is an Australian visual artist based in Brisbane, Queensland. Her work, based on the concept of illusion and perception, explores the changing beauty of nature through a window of geometric patterns and sacred geometry.

Its gearing up for another amazing year of fantastic exhibitions, I'm so humbled to be surrounded by so many amazingly creative artists who I am fortunate enough to be friends with :)

In the Studio this Weekend......

This weekend I found myself still tying up loose ends with left over pieces from the recent "Mamas in the Hood" exhibition.  I've always been interested in journalling blogs and love Ro Bruhn's Art Blog and follow quite a few more.  Motivated by these, I decided to use my tests and sample pieces to create a few journals and use up some of my leftover pieces.  I also included some good quality drawing paper amongst the pages for doodling, sketching, writing, etc. 

I've also been progressing two pieces inspired by the life drawing classes I did years ago at the Brisbane Institute of Art.  The idea of incorporating the female form in my current medium has been knocking around in my head for a while ..... its presenting many challenges, especially working on a much larger scale, but its excting!
